The Waluso Gallery 63 Hanbury Street (Brick Lane) E1 5JP
British contemporary artist Timothy Gatenby presents his solo exhibition “Nice Day Out” at London’s Waluso Gallery.Timothy creates nostalgic, often dystopian, scenes in oils often featuring our childhood television heroes. His work places emphasis on the colours of distinctly blurred compositions as a reference to his refusal to wear glasses as a child.
This exhibition consists of works Gatenby produced over the last few years as well as many created under lockdown.
His new body of work reflects a popular culture corrupted by troubling everyday life. The paintings depict cartoon characters exploring vices like drug and alcohol abuse, vanity and gluttony as means to relieve shared societal concerns of deprivation, political stability, public health and the superficiality of modern capitalism. This exhibition will surely quench your aesthetic thirst.
